plastic is out of the way, we

Step 12 




• Do not remove the power board yet. It is still attached to the motherboard assembly 
via the power board connector (highlighted in the first picture), which is located next 
to the main power switch. 

• Carefully lift the power board. You should now see the power board connector 
attached to the power board. 

• Pull the power board connector straight to lift it out of its socket on the power board. 






Step 13 — Disc Drive 




• Underneath where the power 
supply once was is a transparent 
piece of plastic. This is the heat 
shield, and it can now be removed. 

• It can be a bit stubborn, so 
it may take a little finessing 
to get it free.

Step 14 




• Now with the heat shield out of the way, you can see there are quite a few screws 
holding the rest in place. 

• Remove the following screws securing the metal chassis to the logic board: 
# Seven 5.8 mm Phillips silver screws. 

Two 7.4 mm Phillips gold screws. 







Step 15 




• Unclip flaps, one on one side and two on the other, holding the disc drive together. 
The first two pictures display where the three flaps are. This is very tricky so 
take your time. 

• Carefully begin to lift out the disc drive. 

• Beware, there are ribbon cables still attached.
